Super good seafood at a very reasonable price! The ceviche is legit! We will certainly be back the next time we are in town.

Great ceviche, great atmosphere, great fast service and the portions are HUGE. As a 200 pound man I thought I should get the medium size after a day of waling around Chichen Itza. This ended up being enough for dinner for one then two lunches...More

The bean dip is really good. Good drinks. Shrimp Ceviche really good. Fresh food and fast service. It was recommended by the staff of our hotel. If you are in town you really need to taste the food!

We got fish and octopus and even though the menu card said grilled they were not able to do it grilled, which meant that we got very oily dishes straight from the pan. The service was nice.

Fresh, plentiful and delicious. Best place in town for fresh seafood. Owned and operated by fishing family. Very modest, but efficient operation. Full of patrons all the time. We were lucky and got a table for two. Most people wait 20-30 minutes. Service was exceptional.

Everything has already been said here: expect to wait, but you’ll get good seafood dishes, big plates, fair price, fast service. Ceviche on the picture is medium size ;)
